A busy weekend ahead…

 

 

 

There’s lots going on at Beaufort this weekend (July 27-29th). If you are looking for somewhere to enjoy this glorious summer weather, the Beaufort picnic area is hard to beat. Our tasting room is open Fri-Sun from noon until 5pm. We encourage you to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden after your tasting. Wine is available to purchase by the bottle – ice buckets, glasses and water are supplied.

***NEW RELEASE*** We’re releasing 2016 Ça Beautage on Friday in the tasting room from noon. As always, a 100% Beaufort-grown Foch blend with light to medium body, soft tannins and lots of ripe black fruit aroma and flavour.

***SWEET TUNES*** On Saturday evening (July 28th) we will host the Valley’s own Cedar Spoon in the garden for an intimate acoustic gig. Doors from 6.30pm, gig kicks off at 7. This event is FREE to attend and kids are welcome. Wine is available to purchase by the bottle – ice buckets, glasses and water are supplied.

 

Hope to see you soon!

2017 Epic release

 

At long last! 2017 Epic will have its debut this weekend in the tasting room. Join us for a sip between noon and 5pm, July 6th to 8th. This vintage offers a perfect snapshot of our cool coastal climate – 100% Island grown Epicure and Ortega with a partial ferment in Hungarian oak barrels. Bright on the palate with lots of custard apple and pear to boot. Lemon-hued goodness that will pair perfectly with a bowl of crunchy, sweet and spicy pad thai. Recipe coming soon!

Tasting room season is ON!

If you have been thinking to come visit the Beaufort tasting room, now seems like a perfect time! The weather has been ideal for picnics and our 2017 sparkling rosé tastes even better when the temperatures soar. We are open from noon until 5pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Enjoy a tasting before a picnic lunch in the garden. While we do have some whole food snacks available in our store, we encourage you to bring your own picnic. Wine glasses and ice supplied, if required. Our wines are available to purchase, by the bottle, to enjoy in the picnic area. And, of course, if your party doesn’t finish the bottle, we can re-cork for you to take home. Children are allowed in our tasting room and in the picnic area. Looking forward to welcoming you soon!

Vintner’s Reserve Ortega Release

 

 

Just in time for Thanksgiving, we are releasing our first batch of Vintner’s Reserve Ortega! Our store will be open on Friday 6th October from noon until 5pm.

This is your exclusive chance to get your hands on this 2016 barrel-aged Ortega, as well as stock up on your Beaufort favourites in time for Thanksgiving dinner.

Because it’s our very busy harvest and crush season, we will not be able to offer a full tasting room experience on October 6th. We will open the store PRIMARILY FOR WINE SALES, with an opportunity to taste the new release Vintner’s Reserve Ortega only. Looking forward to seeing you!
